Demanding Jameson

Having a baby is hard! I forgot how much time it takes. Yesterday, I never even got showered or dressed because the longest he would be happy without being held was 10 minutes! Today, Brian took him for the past hour so I could shower and get dressed. (Brian works from home)But then I got into this blog...oh well. I guess he's being good or Bri would come up with him.

But since he is SOOOOOO cute, it's hard to be upset about it. All he has to do is smile at you and you don't think of anything else. As soon as the kids get home from school, they come RUNNING in to see him. And Brian is more attatched to him that I remember him being with the other kids. I think part of it is that he works from home so he gets to be with him more. But a lot of it, I'm sure, is how hard it was to get him here and everything we went through with the miscarriage and then the scary pregnancy. And then some of it is just being an older father, and realizing how quickly time passes and how special it is to have a little baby in the home.

Getting started!

Well, since I never seem to have time to write in a journal, I thought this might be a good way to keep some record of our life right now, and at the same time be able to keep others in touch with us.
